Tower 28 in Long Island City was designed to be a 57-story residential rental tower inclusive of a luxury amenity experience to rival any vacation destination. The building is comprised of two connected segments; the tower on 28th Street houses all of the 451 residential units, while the smaller building on 27th Street houses amenities including a pool, a fitness center, spa, sauna and yoga studio. The two segments are connected on the 2nd floor by a covered breezeway and share a roof deck that can be opened in summer months via a Nanawall to the pool in the amenity building.
The tower’s mass is broken into lighter volumes to create a slender volumetric expression. A combination of spandrel glass and fritted glass panels in a variety of different colors and patterns, are layered to create compositions that move up the building in shifting, dynamic movements. The observation deck on the 60th floor of the building allows residents to take in the incredible views.
